When you begin looking for an online German course, it can quickly become overwhelming. There are so many options, but which ones are worth your time and possibly money?
And while the most important thing is that you commit to studying regularly, choosing the wrong course can lead to unnecessary frustrations and sometimes wasted money.
In this article, I’ll walk you through your options. I’ll help you figure out which courses do which things right and where their weaknesses are.
In total, there are over 20 courses included in this list.
Not all of them are good, in fact, there are a few that I think you’d be better off avoiding and many others are just alright. I wanted to be sure to include lots of options, especially ones I dislike, since you may find others enthusiastically recommending them.

Let’s get started with my top recommendation, followed by the best free course.
